To me safer IS better. I'd rather ride with a guy on the road who shows a bit of prudence and patience rather than wanton recklessness. Save it for the track. You want to get nuts and see what your bike can really do? Go to the track.On 2007-01-16 23:39, arashi858 wrote:

You said it! It was a great bike, and very fun to ride. It was a dream to ride in the mountains, and was quite fast in the corners.On 2007-01-17 11:38, Stampy wrote:
Speedydave, How did ya like your Mille, I loved mine but found her a we bit of a handful just putting around, It didn't start to come together till it was doing 160 Km plus, Awesome power delivery use to really punch out of corners I loved that, And the sound Wow!!! :-D I miss mine to, But the S3 is a better allrounder can do more on it and comfortable too!! Just my 2 cents worth
It's much easier to follow someone than to lead. I find myself going alot slower leading because im paying alot more attention to the road, so i brake harder for corners etc.. After a guy behind me passes me, I can easily keep up with them, and it seems like they are slowing me down, in reality it's the nature of leading on a group ride. You ride slower up front i think.On 2007-01-16 22:38, zooplancton wrote:
good video. from experience i'd sAY the duc rider was the better rider. usually when you can stay on someone's as$ like that, that means your most likely faster.

It's a whole lot easier to follow and get right up to someone's ass then it is to pass and lead. When you follow another rider you're able to use them as a brake marker so you can judge how much deeper you can go into a corner before you have to brake. When you're out in front all you have is your own guts and feelings.
